Producer, Concussion
Nominated for: Best First Feature

ROSE TROCHE is the acclaimed director of Go Fish, The Safety of Objects and Bedrooms and Hallways. She began her career by making short films and video. Her directorial debut was the groundbreaking film Go Fish (1994), a lesbian love story that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Made on a shoestring budget, it was one of the truly “independent” films of the mid-’90s, and one of the first in the lesbian genre to cross over to the mainstream. Rose’s career as a director has spanned 20 years; she has helmed for dozens of TV shows in the US, including The L Word for six seasons, as both director and executive producer. Her forthcoming feature film is Elliot King Is Third, produced by Concussion writer-director Stacie Passon.
